's insane the stuff he says. >> this isn't about wayne lapierre. it's about the public wanting to be safe on their streets. ♪ you don't need a weatherman to know it's where the wind blows ♪ >> it's a busy and wintery monday on the east coast. congress is on spring break as lawmakers return to their districts where they're likely to face constituents ready to weigh in on several flashpoint issues. outside the supreme court, spectators are already lining up as the court prepares to hear two cases this week on same-sex marriage. these cases could literally transform the landscape of equal rights in this country. earlier today, president obama addressed a naturalization ceremony for new citizens challenging lawmakers to, quote, have courage when the debate resumes next month. perhaps the most volatile issue facing lawmakers right now, the debate over proposed new gun safety measures. this weekend marked 100 days since the sandy hook elementary school massacre, and gun reform advocates are clearly frustrated with the lack of action from lawmakers. organizers are planning a day of action th

safety debate, michael bloomber prefers data and wayne lapierre prefers wayne lapierre's opinion. it's monday, march 25th, and this is "now." >> the whole thing, universal checks, is a dishonest premise. >> wayne lapierre, meet youtube. we'll take the nra spokesperson on a trip down memory lane. >> 80% of nra members, even, say that they think we should have reasonable checks. >> the numbers don't lie, but are the lawmakers diluted? james carville and howard dean will discuss one nation under a gun. >>> marriage equality sees its day in court and republicans are forced to see the light. >> can you imagine the next presidential campaign, a republican candidate, saying flat-out, i am for gay marriage? >> i could. >> all that hinges on the verdict, ahead. >>> the gop's best and brightest are out with their budgets. and they might just take the country to a scary, dark place. #runfromrand. >>> forget the shadow, punxsutawney phil may have the legal hammer coming down on his head. what's a little climate change when there are prognosticating groundhogs to worry about? >>> everything he se
. they will not relent. they will go forward. >> the nra. >> same way. >> wayne lapierre has driven this cane now since aurora when he came on before and since sandy hook. he has continued to do it. here's the thing about lapierre though. he has flip-flopped on these key issues. take background checks. here's what he said in 1999 about background checks. >> we think it's reasonable to provide mandatory instant criminal background checks for every sale at every gun show. no loopholes anywhere for anyone. we do not, because the fact is the law right now is a failure the way it's working. the fact is that you have 76,000 some people that have been denied under the present law. only 44 were prosecuted. you're letting them go. they are walking the street. >> absolutely shameless. also, wayne lapierre, said previously that schools should be gun-free zones. now he said everyone in the school should be armed. the man does any u-turn that suit him, and yet he's winning this war in washington. why is he winning it? why does the nra continue to wield this power? i've got a tweet here from ted nugent. ask michael
association wayne lapierre. >>> then, marriage equality. do gays and lesbians have a constitutional right to marriage? the supreme court is taking up the question. how far the country has moved on gay marriage politically but is there still a ways to go? one of the key lawyers in the fight, david boies, joins our discussion. plus, the president in the middle east. >> you are not alone. >> how did he do? analysis about his new push for peace and new warnings for syria and iran. >>> and good sunday morning. new hope for a peace push in the middle east. the president arrived back in wa washington after a mideast trip that took him to israel for his first time as president as well as visits to the palestinian territories and jordan while a reinvigorated peace process is one goal, more pressing concerns for the obama white house are the threats from iran and the effect of the relentless bloodshed in syria. we want to begin with some analysis about the president's trip this morning with our chief foreign correspondent richard engel back from the region. he is in new york this morning. i have da
that there's a secret agenda that the nra and wayne lapierre talk about which is create a registry of all gun owners. they either want to attack the guns or take them away. >> he can say whatever he wants. this isn't about wayne lapierre. this is about a public wanting to be safe on their streets. this is about the public having the right to buy arms and the right to protect themselves and the right to use them for sport or hunting. but, also, it's about the public's right to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill. that's in everybody's interests. if you go back to 1999, wayne lapierre testified on behalf of the nra that background checks were appropriate and should be done and congress back in 1968 actually made them the law of the land, but they don't apply to 40% of the gun sales today. something like 58,000 gun dealers across this country, three times the number of mcdonald's stores, as a matter of fact, there are gun stores every place in this country, and those gun sellers -- they do background checks on all their clients. i think last year 78,000 times the governm

. >> that is wayne lapierre head of the nra. this guy he was referring to is new york mayor mike bloomberg. here with us now is democratic senator from pennsylvania and member of the foreign relations committee, senator bob casey and former governor of pennsylvania, msnbc political analyst and co-chair of fix the debt campaign, governor ed rendell. you guys, pennsylvania. huge state. huge sprawling state. filled with sports people, hunters, gun owners, the vast majority of them responsible. where are you on what wayne lapierre said? >> well, we have a million hunters in the state. as ed knows, it's a big part of our culture and pennsylvania. after newtown i spent a lot of time thinking what happened there and i made a pretty substantial shift in my position. i think we should have not only a vote but pass some of the measures we have been talking about, the assault weapons ban, the magazine clip legislation, if we can get to that, and the background checks. there could be others but those are the three main ones. even if it's only done by way of amendment when we get to the legislation itself. >
the nra. here is what wayne lapierre said this week. >> he is going to find out this is a country of the people, by the people, and for the people, and he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to impose his will on the public. they don't want him telling them what to food to eat, and he can't buy america. >> michael: that's because it is already in the pocket of the nra, and yet the gun group just keeps pushing its luck. the nra is actually making robo calls and sending postcards to newtown families. >> your state senator will play a key role in determining whether the connecticut general assembly will pass legislation restricting your gun rights. this would impose a gun rash rashening scheme and imposing gun legislation. >> michael: so they can actually calling families of nowtown, talk about not having the common touch. joining me now john rosenthal. john welcome back into "the war room." >> thank you. >> michael: isn't it ironic that wayne lapierre says bloomberg can't buy the american public? >> it sure is. the ben factors and the uniquely dominating gun indust
. they are financing the nra. that means there is more money now for wayne lapierre. >> financing the republicans and a few of the weasely democrats. >> what's the answer, michael? >> there is only one answer. >> what is the alternative to the nra to stand up, well funded, powerful and to do to the pro gun rights lobby what they do to democrats now and make them cow in fear. >> myself and a few hundred thousand americans this saturday night are going to get together in our living rooms, invite friends and family over and have this virtual discussion on the internet. we are going to watch "bowling for columbine" and we are going to organize this grassroots. that's all i can say. i'm tired of sitting around. i haven't sat around. i have dealt with the issue since columbine. >> what are we waiting for? the next mass shooting? the next movie theater? school? >> i would ask that to harry reid. if you could get him on i would say, how many more sandy hooks before you would not stand in front of a microphone. >> come on the show, harry reid. i have invited senator reid for two years. >> let's kill anoth
heated on guns this morning. mike bloomberg puts up millions for an ad campaign. wayne lapierre calls him nuts. >>> the irs. yes, the internal revenue service, is behind this "star trek" movie starring tax collectors and it's getting backlash. first, we start with developing news at this hour. secretary of state john kerry made a surprise visit to baghdad earlier today where he spoke to prime minister nuri al maliki. secretary kerry is now in amman, jordan, and so is chief foreign affairs correspondents andrea mitchell, traveling with the secretary of state. she joins us by phone now. andrea, what did secretary kerry accomplish with this trip to baghdad? >> reporter: well, it was a very tough trip and a tough message, because we went to baghdad, a quick visit. surprise, under tight security and secrecy, for obvious reasons, because ten years ar the war, there still are terror attacks. last week, when dozens were killed in baghdad. he was in a secure place in the embassy and then visiting prime minister maliki and the speaker of the parliament in iraq in their residences, but his message t
know wayne lapierre well and how they work as an organization. today we hear the nra is [ inaudible ] over the new gun control law, actually taking legal action to try to prevent them bringing in laws which make new york state safer from gun violence. what is your reaction to that? >> well, piers, in this country, laws have to abide by the constitution of the state that they're enacted in as well as under the federal constitution, and if one has a cause of action, the place to settle those concerns are in the courts. that's not just our system. that's the british system as well. i'm sure you're aware of that. that's why we settle those debates in the courts and not out on the street. >> piers, you know, there's a terrible irony that the nra is going after the state of new york for passing gun laws. they want to use the courts to try to protect themselves at the same time they push this law to immunize them from being held accountable by others. they want to use the court to protect themselves but don't want the consumers, the public, or cities to be able to use the courts to hold ne
. the mayor is against illegal guns, they're making a difference. >> he received some criticism. wayne lapierre said to nbc's david gregory about mayor bloomberg this. take a listen. >> people all over, millions of people, sending us five, ten, 15, $20 checks, saying stand up to this guy that says we can only have three bullets, which is what he said. stand up to this guy that says ridiculous things like the nra wants firearms with nukes on them. it is insane. >> lapierre also says bloomberg wants to buy america, heard what he said, he called him insane. when you look at this, could bloomberg's massive wealth interfere with his message with all of the other criticisms levied by the nra? >> it is not just of course mayor bloomberg, you have the brady campaign, a gun organization fighting for stronger gun safety measures as well, along with the american people. and there are just as many i believe just individuals and families that are willing to send in the five and ten dollar contributions adding to the effort. i would encourage mayor bloomberg and the brady campaign to reach out to average con
: and nra ceo wayne lapierre also promised to continue the battle against regulations he said won't work. >> it's a dishonest premise. there's not a bill on the hill that provides a universal check. criminals aren't going to be checked. they're not going to do this. in tucson and newtown and aurora, they are not going to be check. >> vice president biden urged congress to support them. >> the loudest voices have to be for those silenced voices, close to 3,000 since newtown gunned down on american streets, homes and neighbors. >> reporter: vice president biden talked about gun control again last night at a speech to a democratic congressional committee issues session. he said this is going to be quote, one hell of that fight, and it's going to require the support from districts with heavy gun ownership. >> thank you. the supreme court prepares to weigh in on same-sex marriage, while this is what's going on in france. a rally against gay marriage gets violent. all right that's a fifth-floor problem... ok. not in my house! ha ha ha! ha ha ha! no no no! not today! ha ha ha! ha ha ha! jimmy h
and legislators are now listening. >> when you look at the facts, maria, wayne lapierre is not looking at the same world. he is of the nra. he accuses mayor bloomberg of trying to buy america when it comes to gun reform. first, listen to this. >> authe can't spend enough of $27 billion to try to impose his will on the american public. he can't buy america. he's so reckless in terms of his comments on this whole gun issue. >> but the nra itself spent a ton of money trying to influence politics on gun legislation. in 2012 alone, it shelled out $32 million in political spending, maria. >> well, i mean, you hit the nail on the head. i was listening to that sound bite. i'm like, wait a second, is he against gun control? it's one of the largest lobbyists and they write hefty money to both democratic and republican congressional members. i think what the nra believe in commonsense gun reform. they believe in background checks. what's happening is that there's not an alignment of what the membership wants and what the nra is actually doing. >> the ad, since we brought that up, the ad campaign will hit 13
% of the american people. you cannot make an argument -- unless you are head of the nra, wayne lapierre. you cannot make an argument against background checks being universal every single gun purchase, in fact, as recently as 2009, the nra supported universal background checks. even they know it's a good idea. so they gets like 75, 80%. the latest poll that we have seen on gun safety measures. 57% of the american people support the assault weapons ban. again, which is the toughest one? we knew that. dianne feinstein did that when she crafted this legislation. very skillfully crafted this legislation to eliminate some 150 something weapons so the people know what's covered and what's not covered. of course, the gun manufacturers don't like the bill. because the gun manufacturers don't, the nra doesn't. but there is a chance we can get it through the senate. we found out yesterday, not only will we not get it through the senate. we won't even have a vote on it. harry reid yesterday saying, oh no, no, no. i am not even going to allow them this come to the floor becaus
